M.A. in Spanish

This program is for those individuals interested in earning a Master of Arts in Spanish, during the summer, over a period of three years. An attractive feature of the program is the fact that all of the graduate courses will be taken during three summer sessions; the academic year course load will be relatively light. Thus, students will be able to finish the courses within a 26-month time span while maintaining full-time employment. Students from out of the area also may take elective courses during the academic year at other institutions, with the approval of the graduate advisor.

Your completed application must be accompanied by the following:

  • The $55 application fee (check or money order made out to SSU)
  • Two (2) Official Transcripts showing the most recent 60 semester units you have attempted, as well as award of the bachelor's degree
  • Four (4) copies of a written Statement of Purpose as related to the Spanish M.A. Program (written in Spanish, maximum 500 words).
  • One (1) copy of an oral description of your experience as a learner/speaker of Spanish
    spoken by you in Spanish ( maximum four minutes), either on a cassette tape or CD
    (.mp3, QuickTime, Audacity formats only).

Please mail your application and all accompanying materials to:

SSU School of Extended and International Education
Attn: Karen Fischer
1801 E. Cotati Ave., Stevenson Hall 1012
Rohnert Park, CA 94928.

The priority application deadline is March 1, 2015. All completed applications received by that date will be considered. Applications received after March 1 will be considered on a space-available basis.
